We have to include Hollywood royalty Tom Hanks, who makes his Broadway debut as Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mike McAlary in late writer Nora Ephron's Lucky Guy. The two-time Academy Award winner has embraced the Broadway community in his first New York stage outing, signing autographs for fans outside the Broadhurst Theatre nightly and – along with his Lucky Guy cast members – raising $301,549 in funds for BC/EFA at this year's Easter Bonnet Competition. We hope Lucky Guy is the first of many Broadway projects for the actor - we think he's got a bright future.
